featured speaker, Judy Herrmann
This joint meeting with ASMP (the American Society of Media Photographers) and PPGBA (the Professional Photographers of the Greater Bay Area) full of opportunities and fun is FREE! The 90 minute presentation, “EVERYTHING HAS CHANGED” by Judy Herman will begin at 8 PM. Judy Herrmann, a former president of the American Society of Media Photographers (ASMP) and winner of the International Photographic Council’s 2008 Leadership Award from the United Nations, is a partner and founder of the Herrmann + Starke studio, specializing in digital still life and lifestyle photography for advertising and editorial clients.
An Olympus Visionary since 2000, Herrmann lectures extensively about digital photography and sound business practices. She offers expert consultations and including how to turn a passion for photography into a profession. Herrmann developed an introduction to photography business practices program for the Olympus Meet the Pros lecture series and she often travels to ASMP chapters to present “I Need to Jumpstart My Business,” a seminar that helps photographers strategize on how to take their careers where they want to go.
Judy's program also looks at the financial affects a photography career can have on your personal life. Many photography students are finding that learning their trade can be an expensive task. Judy will speak about using photography scholarships to help offset the costs of future training. These days, photography technology is changing so frequently that constant education feels like the new normal. Keeping up is tough, but Judy will showcase some websites you can use to help make your photography education more affordable for yourself and your family. We all know that student loans suck! In fact, Judy hates them!
Her program will speak to how to be a professional photographer in a day when everyone has a camera. Judy’s program will point out how your career of photography is no longer selling photography and how PHOTOGRAPHY’S FUNCTION HAS CHANGED. You are not selling photography anymore. Judy will cover how ads and markets have evolved. Her information will show you the value proposition has changed. “Quality is not an absolute measure.”
If you’re wondering where photography will be in 20–30 years like other industries of past and future such as Apple, then you shouldn’t pass up this opportunity to come and hear Judy share her insights of what she has learned from sitting among the leaders, movers and shakers in our photographic industry.
